A collection of my favorite doom, death doom, funeral doom, stoner, drone and sludge metal albums. One album per band and in no particular order other than alphabetical. List will be updated semi-regularly so remember to stop by every so often!

The signifies an album that is borderline perfect. Can you find them all?

I have so many suggestions for this list it isn't even funny anymore.

Let me know if you want those and I'll give them soon. I could only suggest the stuff that I regard as excellent (so all 9's and 10's) or only the masterpieces, your call.

After our conversations with MechanisT today, I did a re-do of this list. What do you think now? I'm thinking of carrying the style over to my other lists.

It's definitely an improvement. Some of the albums of bands listed here wouldn't be my best choices, but good choices nonetheless. As for my 10/10 suggestions (so all masterpieces):
- Katatonia - Brave Murder Day (this MUST be on the list if you ask me)
- My Dying Bride - Songs of Darkness, Words of Light and The Angel and the Dark River
- Empyrium - A Wintersunset... and Songs of Moors and Misty Fields
- Desire - Locus Horrendus - The Night Cries of a Sullen Soul
- Draconian - Where Lovers Mourn
- Uaral - Sounds of Pain
- The Sins of thy Beloved - Lake of Sorrow (gothic doom, so it's up to you whether to add it or not)

Also check out the top 10 of my most recent list for essential death doom albums (everything in the top 10 is worth at least a 9.5!). All these are essential in my opinion. Let me know if you need all my 9/10's as well.

Great list! I'm not going to suggest anything to add to it.
Fearmeister - 02.01.2014 at 18:08  
Added Avatarium
Constantine - 19.03.2014 at 21:13  
You should seriously add Candlemass' debut on top of their sophomore, or maybe swap them.
Fearmeister - 22.03.2014 at 21:43  
Added Blood Farmers.

And no, I won't switch Nightfall out since I prefer that more.
